The National Housing Law Project (the Law Project) applies its special expertise in federal housing law and policy to provide the nation's public interest attorneys, tenants, and other housing advocates with training, technical assistance, and litigation support. The Law Project is the legal backbone to the nation's many tenant-centered attempts to preserve and produce affordable rental housing. The grant ensures that the Law Project undertakes a robust planning process to prepare the organization for an upcoming transition in its top leadership and strategic priorities.

$225,000

2013 • 2 years • Housing

The National Housing Law Project provides legal assistance to affordable housing residents and their advocates and trains public agency staff about housing policies and regulations. In many parts of the country, low-income families face a shortage of safe, affordable rental housing. The problem is exacerbated by tenants’ inability to afford competent lawyers in disputes with landlords, and by local elected officials’ lack of understanding about their obligations to support affordable rental housing. With this grant, the National Housing Law Project will continue to provide legal advocacy and education to advance the goal of preserving affordable rental housing across the country.
